Uh-oh... TMZ calls Chelsea Handler a "bigot"


Looks like the boys at the corporate porn-pushing gossip site TMZ.com really stepped in it this time:

Chelsea Handler's New Gig: Bigot?
Posted Nov 25th 2007 2:00PM by TMZ StaffFiled under: Train Wrecks
Trying to joke about race can get you in a lot of trouble -- just ask Michael Richards. Last night outside of Koi, supposed comedian Chelsea Handler tried to the same thing and, like Kramer, failed miserably. She was approached by two cameramen -- one of whom was Chinese, the other (our guy) was African-American. Chelsea quipped that it was "crazy that you guys all travel together, Asians and blacks. That's amazing." And they can vote now, too!

Chelsea Handler a bigot? Those are strong words from the loose cannon weekend crew, trying too hard to whip up a scandal after one of its aggressive teams of amateur boys with home video cameras confronted another celebrity outside a restaurant in hopes of goading her into a fight. This time, it's the E! Entertainment Channel's boss's girlfriend and legs-akimbo, cocktail-swilling comedy show host who does her best to throw a few one liners.

The weekend editors try to paint her with the Michael Richard brush. Bigot? Doesn't seem fair. Looks like Chelsea was just trying to give the thugs what they wanted with a little schtik that's not even as shocking or incorrect as the mainstream "outrageousness" of Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman or Wanda Sykes dish out.

Bigot? She's a comedian doing a line that emcees might use on a table of comedy club customers. It's a long way from Michael Richards.

It's not just that the piss-fetish deviates at the Winchell-style bullying TMZ are pushing a hypocritical, fascistic political correctness that wound tend to force comedy and free speech to pre-Lenny Bruce standards. Remember, Chelsea's the boss's girlfriend. The corporate E! bosses could come down hard on the competition calling his girl a bigot.

We'd even bet that the story disappears from the site.

Not that we feel too sorry for Chelsea. She does a nightly comedy show on E! without writers. That's why she's not so smooth, and why her show carries on despite the Writers Guild strike. Everything on the E! channel, news shows and all, is made up on the spot. Without writers.

But the TMZ TV show is supposedly the ultimate union-buster, even making AFTRA's blacklist.

Anyway, we're getting bored writing about the corporate porn-pushing gossips. It's a lowlife, crude, deviant operation that's not funny or insightful and doesn't have the balls to admit they are what they are-- like yesterday, when they tried to distance themselves from the paparazzi swarm around Dennis Quaid and his wife as they deal with a medical emergency surrounding their newborns:
More than ten paps (not TMZ) have been on the Quaids, shouting out question after question.
Not TMZ? That's as much of a mystery as why the site ignored Owen Wilson's suicide attempt. Do they have a thing against breeders? We'll save that for the book.

She's probably not a bigot but she's dumber than catsh*t. If Ted Harbert wasn't doing the sofa cha-cha with her, she'd be a cocktail waitress.

I don't even know who Chelsea Handler is, even after you explained it, so their calling her a "bigot" was meaningless to me (and probably to most other people).

She is a COMEDIAN... she makes fun of her own race on her own show too... Jew/Mormon. Get over yourselves, lighten up. She was a huge outspoken Obama supporter. She is full of wit. Everyone I know thinks she is very funny. Leave Chelsea and Oprah alone.

Chelsea is a Kathy wannabe. She is just like a female version (or is she really female) of Dane Cook. Her jokes are based on being crass, discriminatory and calling people "assholes". Kathy is a comedic genius, there should be no comparison at all. Have u seen Chelsea on "Girls Behaving Badly"? That prank show? I think she's putting up an act here.

Being a bully without a comedic plan isnt funny.. its just plain nasty. Thats why i wonder why people laugh at her jokes. I just dont get it.

Yes. She is a bigot. She makes fun of asians, blacks, latinos, and little people. I dont know why people support her.

She's a total bigot. Her whole act revolves around degrading Mexicans. If somebody made fun of her ethnicity that person would lose his job. She has no talent. She has a show because she's dating the boss at E.
